That’s a very bad habit that I have when trying to eke out some time to write. I have all these wonderful plans to get in a few minutes of editing here, a few minutes of writing there … but something always comes up to distract me. Could be the pup, a quick trip to the grocery store, a book I just cannot put down.
I’m waaaaay too easily sidetracked. I admire those authors who can sit down at 8:00 a.m., write straight through to noon, take a break, and then continue on through 5:00. This is, after all, their 9:00 to 5:00 job. My 9:00 to 5:00 job consists of working in an office, but has nothing to do with writing. If I ever manage to get a line in here and there, I consider that a bonus.
Really gotta get into some sort of a routine. Been saying that for ages, but do I do it? Nope.
